SONG: "Rooney, don't take my man!" (Jolene)

Come hear the lamenting pleas of many an English wife as the World Cup begins! 

Veronica Almqvist’s mellifluous voice takes on my bantering lyrics - set to Dolly Parton's Jolene (and my crude video). 
Vocals: Veronica Almqvist
Lyrics (+ video): Andrei Liberec
Music & original lyrics: Dolly Parton


Refrain:  Rooney, Rooney, Rooney, Rooney,
                I'm begging of you please don't take my man.
                Rooney, Rooney, Rooney, Rooney,
                please don't take him just because you can.

1. Your talent is beyond compare, with regained locks of light brown hair, 
    with ivory skin and eyes of cobalt sea,
    You take the field to much ado, with legs of steel, you push on through,
    few can, least me, compete with thee, Rooney.

2. He talks about you in his sleep, there's nothing I can do to keep, 
    from crying when he calls your name, Rooney.
    And I can easily understand, how you could easily take my man.
    But you don't know what he means to me, Rooney.


3. You might not be as hot as Becks, won't get no fashion sponshorships,
    let's face it, Wayne: you ain't  no George Clooney.
    But that is what he loves you for, you're just like the fella next door,
    oh, if he could, he would, wed you, Rooney.

4. Your dash's like a flash of light, your temper's like the finest spice,
    your passes, always served delicately.
    He's named our children after you: our boy Wayne I, our girl Wayne II,
    there's nothing he won't do for you, Rooney.


5. I had to have this talk with you, my happiness depends on you, 
    and whatever you decide to do,  Rooney
    You could have your choice of fans, but I could never love again, 
    he's the only one for me, Rooney
